Where Arenberg Theater
What
Who Nelly Gable, Annie Bocel
Nelly Gable and Annie Bocel will introduce the Atelier for the Arts of the Book of the Imprimerie Nationale, its savoir-faire, and its collection of punches (the seven exclusive typefaces and the oriental punches). They will explain in detail the cutting of typographic punches, the striking of matrices, and, briefly, the casting work of Philippe Mérille. They will wrap up with a presentation of the book they are preparing on the topic of transmission between master of arts and apprentice, with the support of the national institute for crafts. This book is an account of the cutting of punches through an interview between Gable and Bocel, and is scheduled to be published near the end of the year by Éditions des Cendre.
